  1. Help

    I also get this from time to time, but it always repairs itself. I agree with the previous post about it being stung, but I have also noticed that I my toadie sometimes reacts like this when my clowns are bothering it.
  2. Flake foods

    I’m not sure I would risk any type of flake that isn’t specifically formulated for reef aquarium. I use formula 2 and prime marine flakes from ocean nutrition on the occasions when I do use flake.
  3. Another Ich Article- A Survival Guide

    It does as you say kill the parasite in the water column. I lost a few fish in my outbreak but the fish that survived this episode and any added since have been fine. I do also feed garlic mixed with my brine or mysis so that may also be a help as it’s known to boost immunity. In all honesty I also have bought another uv sterliser just in case my existing unit develops a fault, that’s how much I believe these units help.
  4. Another Ich Article- A Survival Guide

    I run a uv constantly after an ich outbreak and haven’t had a problem since.
